Gratifying revenge; (June 31, 2009)


            The longer you live the longer the list of people that should incur your vengeance for deeds “totally uncalled for”.  The irony is that very few people reach the stage of acting on any kinds of revenge; time the wise tends to erase cluttered memories; away from sight far is the recollection of the offender; with rare exceptions.  The more enduring the desire for revenge the more irrelevant is the offense; they are offenses in the period of early ignorance.

            Why people who managed to get revenge spend a miserable life afterward? I am not referring to those pathetic comparses who harassed the avenger to going to the end of his frustration: they ejaculated their wretched anxieties and dispersed from the scene.  If the supposed offender has no recollection of the offense or is not willing to apologize because he still believes that he was in the “right” then the revenge has no value.  It is sweet to get financial remuneration for years of personal flagellation but it does not wash completely the lingering bitterness of having been “suckered” or abused of our foolishness.

            Revenge is not such a bad feeling if it becomes an incentive or a catalyst for individual improvement.  The worst part is that most of the offenders die without knowing that we have been feeling deeply miserable for so long because of a redundant word or an unconscious act they did to us; we like to believe that, most probably, the offenders died because of our evil eye or evil spirit chassed them relentlessly to their grave: ignorance has no limits within dark hearts.  Revenge is the bread of everyday but the victims of “honor avengers” for social behavior and close organizational customs and traditions are ultimately the excretion of the monsters of ignorance and ineptitude.


            There are efficient ways of taking revenge grandly. For example, if you are the owner of an enterprise and you need to punish recalcitrant employees then assign them to alveoli with very low ceilings; the lower the height of the ceiling, the darker the colors and the more detailed is the task.  The recalcitrant personnels are those educated hiremen who are timorous enough to look their higher echelon boss in the eyes and devulge inefficiencies, scoundrels, and obtuse routines.

            Abstract notions and imagination take wings in high ceiling environment and amid green wide fields.  If governments are serious about fiscal loopholes then they should assemble the fiscal agents in charge in very low ceiling rooms to iron out the details for well oiled bureaucratic systems.  My hypothesis is that all dictatorial western systems of control were planned, studied, and analyzed in ultra low ceiling caves; most probably, they got these ideas and techniques from reviewing Chinese master archives.
